Join Jim and Greg as they see the resignation of top aide Melissa DeRosa as a major sign that Gov. Andrew Cuomo might not survive this scandal. They also note more polls showing Californians split on the recall of Gov. Gavin Newsom and a majority giving him terrible marks on key issues. And they react to the big Obama birthday bash and wonder whether having a bunch of vaccinated people together without masks is fine or the CDC is serious about vaxxed people staying masked. Because it can’t be both.

Due to the graciousness of Her Majesty’s Government, we’re starting this week with a party at the Young house! (No, not in the Young house, just at the Young house.)

We talk about the BBC’s decision not to cover last Saturday’s anti-lockdown protest – in spite of roughly 100,000 people attending –  the forthcoming march on May 29th, whether the “Indian Variant” will stop the PM from lifting all restrictions on June 21st as planned, and why are so many media types promoting the vaccine?

As human beings we are all aware of the fact that different people live in different “realities” and believe in different “truths.”  Like the political right and left, for instance.  Their respective realities and truths exist in such stark opposition to each other that it is literally impossible for both of them to be simultaneously […]

If you want a perfect example of why you should never trust the mainstream media, especially on matters of race, here it is.  I just saw this article at Yahoo News about a mass shooting last night in Rochester, NY, in which 16 people were shot, two of whom died.  Whoa!  But my first thought […]

So the Dems in the House of Representatives have impeached the President on the flimsiest of charges based on hearsay and speculation, uncorroborated by anything. It’s total garbage. This House f Representatives will be remembered as the most partisan group of legislators—it’s ridiculous to even call them that—in the history of our country. The commies […]

A Really Great Halloween Party

 

Way back in the 1980s, I played in a string quartet with some other amateur ladies. We played strictly for fun, and we did have a lot of it. One year, we decided to have a Halloween costume party for our many musician friends. We asked all of our friends to base their costumes on something musical, and that could be anything at all with a musical theme. We made cookies with music-note cookie-cutters, and someone brought a cake with a very clever frosting in music-staff and notes.

But the best part of that party was the costumes people dreamed up. Starting with myself, and my first husband, who was a mechanical engineer… He always liked to say that I played the violin and he played the stereo. He bought some foam-core board and made himself a very elaborate boom-box costume. He painted on all the controls, front, back and sides, including all the legends (labels) and the battery compartment. I had the bright idea of going as a clarinet. We bought some black poster-board and silver paint. We cut out the front and back, and he painted on all the silver keys. Then, he made me a headdress that was the mouthpiece, with very realistic reeds on the front. I wore the costume like a sandwich-board, with shoulder-straps connecting the front and back of the clarinet. My one mistake was forgetting to put a hinge somewhere in the front panel so I could sit down! By the end of that party, I had very sore feet!

Chilling Out on the 4th of July

 

Two and a half years ago, I shared how my father acquired a cannon for holiday noisemaking and celebration in the story “Holiday Traditions: Entering the New Year with a Bang.”

As part of the Bicentennial Year, the Bellmore Johnson Tool Company re-released the Winchester Model 98 signal cannon, a 10-gauge blank-firing miniature cannon. They were all-metal, painted black, and fired by pulling a 10-foot lanyard. […] Firing produced a roar, a flash of flame, and cloud of smoke, and the cannon recoiled several feet.

The timing of the acquisition was critical. It was needed to celebrate the bicentennial of our nation’s Declaration of Independence. We also got a Betsy Ross flag to fly out front of our quarters on the Army post where we lived, which was pretty cool. But what was really cool, besides the homemade ice tea with fresh mint, was ice cream at the picnic held in the yard between quarters (houses).

So as a NeverTrumper (is it really one word?), I firmly believe old Don doesn’t have a chance against the Clinton machine. Why? Well if you don’t know by now that means you are probably voting for him. Either way I firmly believe there is about a 100% – 100% chance he loses to one […]

The phenomena of trump during this Presidential Primary Season has caused a degree of despair, joy, pain, vengeance, and anxiety. But this article is not about that but rather looking to the future. This article is about creating some degree of cohesion and unity on what libertarians and conservatives (of various stripes) can propose as policy or […]

Just in case we need to make a hasty exit On March 16th, we should start thinking of a new party name now. We don’t want to get caught up in the naming process and lose precious time that has to be spent on petitions and fundraising efforts. (No doubt Ricochet readers will be among […]
